The AWS CISO on AWS Security

Again a good blog by Jeff on AWS Blog…

Do follow to understand security on AWS Cloud…

As you can tell by looking at the AWS Security and Compliance Center, we take security seriously. You can find information about our certifications and accreditations in the center, along with links to four security white papers.

The Amazon Appstore team can therefore easily add additional capacity whenever needed and where it makes the most sense with respect to the incoming traffic.

Check out Jeff’s full post on the Amazon Web Services blog.
